Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
I agree -- beautiful. If you compare this picture with a photograph shown in Zach's Sept. 29, 2009 post you'll see in this picture:1) The loggia has been enclosed.2) The cherub statues have been rotated from facing each other to looking down the back of the house. I would have rotated them the other direction -- I don't like those buggers looking at me.
I've always loved this place.
SPLENDID !!! I would love to have been able to look through that telescope at the water craft on Long Island Sound. And, by the way, Putti are alwways a welcomed sight no matter which way they face !
Agreed very beautiful and an unfortunate loss, more so considering that the incredible waterfront site remains vacant to this day. Archibuff
Really lovely shot. Of course, I never fail to be hornswoggled that people used to so willingly allow their houses to be the subject of postcards sold at the corner drug store.
